Rendili StarDrive: Look at how thin and spindly we made the connection between the drive and main superstructure on the Nebulon B! =(・ω・)=

Whoever makes this: …

Kewl. Was hoping to see something a little more robust. Like a Star Wars version of the Tarawa Class amphibious assault ships the US Navy used. Troop ships, light armor vehicles and fighter or cover.

I was thinking smaller scale. Having Corps in the name of that one makes me think multiple divisions and all supporting equipment. I am thinking something that would carry a battalion of troops with smaller armor units like the occupier tanks, ITT troop transport and the means of ferrying them and troops to the surface. As well as a squadron of fighters for air cover.

Sounds about right. Something that could deliver and support the Star Wars version of a Marine Expeditionary Unit. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marine_expeditionary_unit

Sounds a lot like the Kontos class frigate to me. It’s roughly equivalent to a Strike class medium cruiser, which could carry about a battalion of troops and support vehicles, depending on configuration.

The Kontos is more of a fleet ship, but I can see what you mean in terms of size and complement. I love the idea of an expeditionary assault ship that could a) quickly respond to threats that don’t require a full field army, and b) in larger operations, get in quickly to secure a foothold before the main invasion force arrives. Although I wonder if a regiment might be more appropriate, given the scale of the SW galaxy. This also reminds me of I’ve been dying to see: company and battalion dropships. Fractal mentioned them when he was working on the Chi, and I think it would greatly increase the Empire’s flexibility in deployment to have a range of dropships, light, medium, and heavy.
